Structuring cross-border transactions, and particularly those involving multiple jurisdictions, is an increasingly complex matter. The possibilities of taking security vary between European countries, and as borrowers seek to support their loans with a wide variety of collateral – including real estate assets, shares, receivables and IP rights – from across the markets in which they operate, it can be challenging to keep track of the various third party costs applicable in the various jurisdictions.

The CMS Guide to Third Party Costs provides you with summaries of the relevant costs in various countries and is aimed at helping you when structuring a cross-border financing.

If you would like to receive more detailed information about the legal regime in a particular jurisdiction, then please contact one of the members of the CMS Banking & Finance team who will be happy to provide further advice.
